NORMAN, Okla. (AP) _ New Oklahoma basketball coach Jeff Capel is taking advantage of a new NCAA rule which allows full workouts.

As of last Friday teams are allowed to hold practice for all players for up to two hours per week. Before Friday coaches could work with no more than four players at one time.

Capel says the full team workouts give him a chance to see how the players work together as a team.

Full pre-season practices begin October 13th.
